Europlex® SDX / SDX-F

EUROPLEX® ESD glazings protect against electrostatic discharge events (ESD) and prevent particle contamination.

Especially in the high-tech-industry the requirements on hygiene, production processes, quality demands and safety are rising. Some of the most ambitious industries are the semi-conductor and electronic industry as well as the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry.

Production processes in cleanrooms need to be protected against particle contamination. Materials with a dissipative surface provide protection against the adhesion of particles.

Properties

Permanent static dissipation
The surface resistivity is 105-7 Ω/sq. Dissipation capacity is permanent and independent of ambient humidity. Temporary ionization is not required.

Efficient protection against static discharge in compliance with industrial standards
Correctly grounded ESD glazing dissipates electric charges in a controlled manner.

Best optical transparency
The excellent light transmission always guarantees a crystalclear view of products and processes.

Extreme impact strength
At lower weight, the impact strength of EUROPLEX® ESD glazing materials is 250 times higher than that of glass. The polycarbonate sheets are shatter-proof. EUROPLEX® is therefore ideally suited for transparent machine glazing. Both man and machine are perfectly protected.

Benefits

Lower scrap rates in electronic assembly
Uncontrolled electrostatic discharges of only a few volts are enough to damage or destroy electronic components. EUROPLEX® ESD glazing materials dissipate electric charges to ground in a controlled manner, preventing both immediate and latent defects caused by ESD. This means higher production yields and fewer customer complaints, combined with ESD protection in accordance with DIN EN 61340-5-1.

Prevention of explosions in production areas handling explosive materials
In explosive atmospheres, static electricity causes fire and explosions due to spark formation. If properly grounded, the use of
EUROPLEX® ESD glazing materials effectively safeguards industrial facilities against explosion in compliance with ATEX.

Less machine downtime in dust-intensive production environments
EUROPLEX® ESD glazing materials protect machines and materials against local accumulations of dust and dirt particles. The functional reserve of optical sensors is significantly increased. Safety and availability of production facilities are improved.

Handling & logistics

EUROPLEX® sheets are shipped everywhere in the world to meet your needs. Our global distribution network is able to handle even the most complex logistical challenges.

PRODUCT LABELING
Upon request, we provide a material testing certificate for our products with information about the material properties that are relevant for you. Our materials have unique labels to allow for 100% traceability back to the resource materials. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need specially labeled products for medical or aeronautical applications.

PACKAGING
Our high-quality materials always leave our plants with adequate protective packaging. If your processing standards call for it, we can also provide our sheets with laminations on one or both sides.

ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE

Electrostatic charging occurs when there is an excess of electrons (negative charge) or a lack of electrons (positive charge) at a material surface. This charge imbalance is produced by rubbing together and separating two insulators that are in contact with each other (static electricity) or when a body is exposed to an electric field (influence).
